  1. My neck of Maine woods was not very heavily settled band even unto the late 60’sand early 70,s there were msny places still with partyline phones and no TV or running water or lights bare wired hangin from cielings or lamps tack to walls but back in the 50’s there were many land rich and dirt poor homeplaces still as if in 1800’s.
    The Boston Men and Yorkers bought up all the lands when oldtimers had died and they acted the part of New Englands Gentry class, right down to coonskin coats with foxtails hanging from Open top Morgan and MG sportscars.for their kids and Packards Lincolns and Cadilacs for mom and dad.
    It was a good time to be young and woodwise and poor actually; as I made more working for the outsiders than grown men did logging or working in Linoleum wollen or shoe .factories.and never more. Than during hunting seasons.
    ON Deer grouse pheasant and wpodcock drives.I was a hired driver and retriever along with my dogs.
    Also as a gutter meat fowl and fish cleaner at ends of days activitys.. Gutters pluckers and scalers for their gentrified vacation hunts.
    There was one old duffer who loved hunting wpodcock(woodcock) and partridge( grouse) and he always packed two brases of Gold amd Silver engraved Browning Superimposed.
    Woodcock are active like a snipe, and while some run along ground “you do not pot shoot birds on water or ground , hetold me ; But when they take wing they are the original “dippsy-doole” of bird world.
    A hard target in open fields but damned hard in light brush or forestlands along farms and sto e wall.
    To this day I can remember autumn culors and the suns last rays flashing off that gold and silver as he would drop two birds taking flight.
    One of his braces was a double triggered and that is the one he let me fire one day.
    Two dippsy-doodles took off and I downed both.
    When he handed me back my old greener And I his browni g I knew then what fine firarms were all about.
    To this day I still want an Engraved gold silver platinum and grreen Superimposed but damn $80,000 and a two year wait is money and quite possibly time I do not have; yet if things go right I will someday have one of these $4000 Brownings
    One that swings in hands you make sure are clean and not oily a nd naturally points as to where that little wpodcock next dips, and if held right you can darn near see your relection in its wood.
    And when one hears the latch opening and two cases popping out leaving a smell of powder as you reload and once more hear the lock up you know
    you are holding quality.
